One of the rarest Corvettes ever built by the Chevrolet Styling Studio in late 1956, the Corvette Super Sport was thought to be lost forever. In 1956, $18,000 was spent to customize it, a enormous cost at that time. 


Wrecked by a kid on a joy ride in Alberquerque in late 1957, then sent off to a junk yard.


Miraculously found in a barn in New Mexico 45 years later.


When the entire story is told, this will truly be one of the greatest barn finds ever.






Meticulously restored over a seven year period by a well known Corvette restorer.


Upcoming presentation and photo album of the completed restoration soon. Check back often.
